Spotted Towhee Nesting?

Jonathan Mills-Anderson

Hi Everyone,

At about 9:00 this morning in my backyard in Aliso Viejo, I saw a Spotted Towhee pair apparently collecting nesting material. I've had multiple towhee nests in my yard over the years, so I'm rather used to seeing this behavior, but it seems unusually early so I was wondering if anyone with more experience than me could weigh in with their thoughts on this.
